Marching Band
Update and Reminders

The Marching Band had a busy weekend playing at the final football game of the year and then practicing a majority of the day Saturday before heading to their final competition @ Sparta.  Due to all the rain, the marching portion of the night got canceled and it ended up being a standstill performance in the gym.  Not the way they were hoping to end their season, but thankfully next weekend they will be performing their show one last time at MCBA State Finals at the Ford Field House in Detroit!   Way to go Hudsonville 2019 Marching Band for being one of the top 10 bands in the state for Division 1!

Marching Band Members:  just a reminder, the Marching Band Halloween Party is this Thursday after practice!  You guys have worked so hard, we just want you to have a fun night.  There will be games, snacks, a photo booth and lots of candy!!   Don't forget to dress up if you would like!

Also, the Marching Band Banquet it NEXT Monday night! (November 4th)  All HHS 2019 Marching Band members and their families are invited to this celebration of our 2019 season!
We ask that everyone brings a main dish to pass as well as

*Salad (last name M-Z)

*Dessert (last name A-L)


Band Boosters will provide plates, cups, napkins, plastic ware.

We are asking all members of the band to dress in their Sunday best. Please do not wear jeans or t-shirts. Formal wear is not necessary either!

Winter Guard & Winter Drumline
Informational Meeting
Is your daughter or son interested in joining the Winter Guard or Winter Drumline?

If so, you will want to mark it down on your calendar that there will be an informational meeting November 7th at 7 pm in the Baldwin Street Middle School band room for both of these programs. 

Winter Drumline

*Percussion experience is not necessary
*Membership is open to all band students grade 7-12.
*While we do not use this as a way to switch kids to the percussion section, it is a way for them to play the percussion instruments.
*We have a limited number of instruments, so there is an audition required. But, we have a lot of instruments and can accept up to 40 (maybe more) students.

 Winter Color Guard

*Color Guard experience is not necessary.
*Membership is open to all HPS students grade 6-12.
*We are working to offer 3 color guards
so we can meet everyone's experience level.
*We can accept a lot of students into this program! The audition is more of a placement so we can make sure all the students have a great experience.

Pizza Fundraiser

How is your pizza sale going? 

Just a reminder this week is the final push for the Little Caesars Pizza Kit sale as they are due NEXT Tuesday. 

If you are already done selling, you can have student can turn in their form in a marked envelope with their Name, Band and Pizza Sale written on it.  Please make sure their Name, Band and phone number are located on the order form as well!

This year we did make a Fundraiser Box for each of the band rooms so all our fundraiser orders will be in one place so they won't get lost.  I did ask all the directors to show the kids the box and where it will be located. If your student is unsure, please have them ask their band director.  It's a clear box with FUNDRAISER on it.
Got Receipts?!?
Just a friendly reminder, we are always collecting Family Fare Direct Your Dollar receipts.  There is a Direct Your Dollars box in each of our band rooms as well so receipts can be turned in at any time.  We will also have a box at each of our concerts at the band booster table. 

We will be collecting the receipts from all the schools next Monday, so if you have any receipts laying around, please turn them in this week.

Our goal this year is to hit the $150,000 mark so we can earn another $1000 for our bands!  We are currently at $58,040!   If we can raise $13,138 every month, we will be able to hit our goal. 

Don't forget you can always ask family and friends to see if they would want to start saving them for us as well.  The more Hudsonville Band fans we have saving, the faster we will be able to reach our goal. 

Beginner Bands

Congratulations to Mr. Jacobs & the Baldwin Street Beginner Band as well as Mr. Sheckler & the Riley Street Beginner Band on a successful first concert!

If you were unable to make it to the Baldwin Street & Riley Street beginner band concert this past Tuesday, you surely missed out!  It's always fun going to this concert to see where our students start in their musical journey.   I already can't wait to see them perform at their next concert.
